Vermilion County has been approved for Small Business Administration loans to help people and businesses recover from storms and floods in February. Iroquois and Kankakee Counties also were approved. In addition, people and businesses in contiguous counties also may apply for the low-interest, long term loans.
The SBA examined the counties to see if they met eligibility standards based on the number of home and businesses damaged. Vermilion County had 21 homes and seven businesses that met the criteria.
